Manchester Community College Foundation to honor volunteers at appreciation brunch

MANCHESTER — The Manchester Community College Foundation will hold its annual donor appreciation brunch on Sunday, Feb. 11.


The MCC Foundation will honor Terrence Hoye and Kathryn Kleis with its extraordinary volunteer service award.

The investor of the year award will go to United Bank Foundation Connecticut, with special recognition to Adam Jeamel, the regional president of United Bank. Jeamel and United Bank Foundation Connecticut have provided funds to MCC students and programs for years.


“Our annual Hall of Fame brunch recognizes our volunteers and partners who help keep the relationship between the college and our community alive and relevant,” said MCC President Gena Glickman.


Hoye, of Glastonbury, is a tutor at the college’s Academic Support Center. After retiring from a career in engineering in 2012, he began dedicating his time to tutoring students in academic writing. He also works with local elementary school students as a chess club adviser.


Kleis, also of Glastonbury, is an assistant professor, Criminal Justice Department chairwoman, an academic adviser, and the faculty adviser for the Criminal Justice Club.

Outside of MCC, Kleis founded the Believe 208 Run for the Bravest and Finest 5K Road Race in East Hartford, whose proceeds benefit first responders.

This will be the 10th year the college holds its donor appreciation brunch, which starts at noon at A Villa Louisa in Bolton. The cost to attend is $25. Reservations are required.
